CDU Pre-Medical Academy Mission

The CDU Pre-Medical Academy strives to prepare undergraduate students to enter doctoral health profession fields by providing students with a solid foundation in the basic sciences while providing a critical appraisal of the United States healthcare system. We believe that healthcare in the United States requires professionally trained healthcare leaders who are well-versed in human biology and physiology, public health, health economics, bioinformatics and health care administration. Furthermore, we aim to train future healthcare professionals who will alleviate health care providers in South Los Angeles County and similar communities nationwide.
